Rich Piana Dies; Famed Bodybuilder Was 46

Rich Piana, a bodybuilder famous for his massive physique, has passed away at the age of 46.

Piana was put in a medically-induced coma after he collapsed while getting a haircut on August 7.

Sadly, he never awakened, and his family shared the sad news of his death this morning.

Authorities have stated that they will conduct a full autopsy and investigation in order to determine a cause of death.

According to TMZ, a preliminary search of Piana’s apartment revealed 20 bottles of steroids and an unidentified white powder.

Piana was an admitted steroid user but at this time, it’s unclear of substances played a role in his death.

With more than 1 million Instagram followers and the title of Mr. California under his belt, Piana was one of the best-known names in the world of bodybuilding.

Piana reached more mainstream audiences through frequent media appearances, including a memorable segment on the popular Comedy Central series Tosh.0.

In his interview with comedian Daniel Tosh, Piana spoke of retiring from bodybuilding for his health.

“Your heart doesn’t know the difference,” Piana said when asked about the difference between a physique that’s 300 pounds of muscle versus one that’s 300 pounds of fat.

Unfortunately, it seems the allure of the lifestyle and its attendant money and fame were too much for Piana to resist.

While he retired from competition several years ago, Piana maintained his massive physique as a means of sustaining his online popularity.

This is the second death of a well-known bodybuilder this week.

On Tuesday, the world learned that Piana’s collegaue Dallas McCarver had passed away after choking on food.

As in Piana’s case, authorities are planning to conduct a full investigation and toxicity screening.

In a surprisingly candid YouTube post from 2014, Piana admitted to 30 years of steroid use, telling his followers that performance enhancing drugs are a sad necessity of his profession.

“If you want to become a professional bodybuilder, guess what — you’re probably going to have to f—in’ do ‘em,” he said in the video.

“You’re not going to have a choice.”

Piana went on to caution his fans of the dangers of hormone supplements, saying:

“There’s no reason to do steroids, you’re only hurting your body, you’re hurting yourself.”

Tragically, it seems Piana may have had difficulty following his own advice.

Brad Grey Dies; Famed Producer Was 59

You may not know the name Brad Grey, but if you’re a fan of TV and movies, you’re almost certainly familiar with his work.

Grey passed away Sunday night after 12 years as head of Paramount Studios and several decades in Hollywood at the helm of some of the true classics of the modern era.

He was 59 years old.

News of Grey’s death was confirmed by reps for the mogul.

Sources say he passed away at home surrounded by friends and family after a long battle with cancer.

Despite his illness, Grey stayed on at Paramount until earlier this year, when his condition forced him to step down.

After starting out as a gofer for Harvey Weinstein and concert promoter in Buffalo, NY, Grey made the jump to Hollywood in

Grey made the leap to Hollywood in the early ’80s, partnering with Bernie Brillstein to found the Brillstein-Grey production company.

Together, Brillstein and Grey produced such film hits as The Wedding Singer, and such and TV classics as The Sopranos, The Larry Sanders Show and Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher.

Prior to assuming the role of chairman/CEO at Paramount, Grey partnered with Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston to form Plan B Productions.

The short-lived company helped to green-light a pair of Warner Bros. hits: Martin Scorsese’s The Departed and Tim Burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The list of commercial and critical hits overseen by Grey during his time at Paramount is too lengthy to reproduce here, but highlights include:

How to Train Your Dragon, Shrek the Third, Mission: Impossible III, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, An Inconvenient Truth, There Will Be Blood, No Country for Old Men, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Babel, Shutter Island, Up in the Air, The Fighter, True Grit, and Hugo.

As a studio chief who delivered record profits while maintaining a commitment to artistic integrity, Grey was viewed by many of his colleagues as a refreshing throwback to a bygone Hollywood era, when producers cared about more than just the bottom line.

As a philanthropist and human being, those who knew Grey best say his kindness was unmatched.

He is survived by his wife, Cassandra Huysentruyt, and three children, Sam, Max, and Emily.
